036. ‘STILL WATERS’. Anaconda. Cristolino River, Brazil
The green anaconda forages predominantly in shallow water in wetland habitats. Their prey includes a variety of mammals, birds. reptiles’, fish and eggs. The green grows to a maximum of twenty two feet. They are not driven by insatiable appetites, since a meal can last about two months. Whilst digesting, they usually remain still and in the same place. This one was seen over several days in the same location. The other anaconda found in the Pantanal is the yellow anaconda which is somewhat smaller.
